In this Sixth Edition of From Neuron to Brain, you will find a readable, contemporary book suitable for undergraduate, graduate, and medical school courses in neurobiology. Behavioral studies of the nervous system, from simple reflexes to complex cognitive functions, are emphasized, as in previous editions, through electrical recordings, molecular and cellular techniques, and electrical recordings. In laboratories and clinics today, new findings are being made through the conduct of research lines that begin with the inception of an idea.
This book will appeal to anyone curious about how the nervous system works, regardless of their background in biological sciences.
With this book, students have access to the most comprehensive coverage of topics for their advanced undergraduate courses.,Stephen Meriney, University of Pittsburgh
This book contextualizes neuroscience through experimental findings. Students can benefit from exploring neuroscience through the rich stories of experimental discoveries.,J. David Spafford, University of Waterloo
